Mommies to be check in

Recommended Posts

GemiLibria- I would be very annoyed with that too! Sleeping is almost non existent for me these days...between getting up for the bathroom, heartburn, and just plain old being uncomfortable! One more week til my due date, I almost cried today to not hear let's induce you!! Pretty sure FI was too, I take up most of our bed with all my pillows too!

 

Andrea- I've been itchy too, but I forget the name of it..From pregnancy I have little white bump looking things in the palms of my hands and soles of my feet...I feel for you!

 

Angel- So sorry to hear baby's still breech! Hoping she will turn for you on her own!!

 

I had another check up today...Still only about 2 cm dilated, but she scraped my membranes and said hopefully I'll see her in a day or two before she leaves on holidays..I really hope so too!! I'm feeling pretty crampy tonight, so I'm hoping that it's working and I go into labor soon!!! We've finally got the nursery 99% done, just waiting on some wall decals to write her name on the wall :) I will get pics up soon.

 

Hope everything else is all good with all you ladies! :)

Tlseege- thanks, you're so sweet! I just realized that you can't really see my belly in the pics, but it's there!!

 

GeminiLibra- I would be mad, too!! Of all themes to choose from and she chooses yours!! Just wait to see what her nursery looks like so you can decorate yours a little different and 100x's better!! I'm sure yours will look great!

 

Kat- Congrats on your little girl!!!!!!!!! Your hubby and you must be sooo excited!!

All of you are having girls so far!! Besides Bisha and I, are we the only ones with boys?! Come on ladies, start making some baby boys ASAP!!

 

Angel- Sorry to hear she's still breech. 3 weeks is a long time, so you never know, she may decide to flip by then!!

 

Summer- Count down is on....you're going to have a baby any moment now......popcorn.gif

 

Regarding the sleeping, yah, I'm having trouble too. The issue is, I've been waking up hot and sweaty (and I'm usually always cold at night) no matter the temperature, so I can't really sleep with a body pillow to help out. It makes me hotter, but then again my legs begin to lock up and they hurt with out one.

 

I hope everyone else is doing well!

Oh Angel, I'm sorry. I actually think that my little one might be breech too. She only kicks down in my pelvic bone... and the hiccups are up near my rib cage. So, I might be in the same boat as you are. Is there any way that YOU can tell that she's upside down?

Kelly- how was your appt?

 

I have a question for you all- what's up with Charley Horses while your pregnant? I have had so many lately!!! I don't even have to be moving in my sleep to get them, they just happen. Last night I had another one and I start yelling and my poor hubby jumped out of bed and thought I was going in to labor. I always freak him out when I get one, so he said in the future to just yell out "charley horse" so he know's why I'm screaming and moving around at night.

 

Also, for you ladies with kids already, I have a question about strollers. I already received a full-sized, system travel stroller, but I noticed on my registry that someone also purchased a jogging stroller and a light weight stroller for us. Do I need that many? I want to keep the jogging stroller because I love to run and I know I will use it for sure, but do I need the other lightweight stroller? If I wanted to use something lighter than the travel system stroller, I can always just use the jogging one, right? I haven't even received the other two, but I was just trying to figure out whether I would actually need all three so I can return one or just keep it.

I know, for my sister, she had a couple lightweight ones and just kept them in the trunks of different cars. It makes it easier, so it's totally a preference. Like when I lived with her and her ex, I had an extra car-seat in my car and they both had car seats in their cars (free or cheap from garage sales for the extras) and she left lightweight strollers in each cars trunks. That way we were never at the mall like "oh crap, we forgot a stroller!"

Yeah, I definitely have all three strollers. The jogging strollers typically don't compact down very much. So i have the travel stroller for big trips. I have the jogging stroller for jogging/walking/gravel trips. And then I have a Jeep Umbrella stroller (only one I ever found with high enough handles so my back doesn't hurt) to just throw in the trunk just in case. Because it folds up so small and easy it's really nice. especially if you're just going somewhere like the park or to the neighbors house or something. It's light weight, easy to travel with, and little to no fuss.

Thanks to both of you for the input. Both of you are right, I never even thought about just leaving the lightweight stroller in the car just to have incase I need it and it's fuss-free. Plus, it doesn't take up much space since it folds up. I'll keep all three!!

Just a thought on strollers. The light/umbrella ones have lower handles and can hurt your back after a while. The jeep is great with high handles but my favorite stroller of all time (i've used a lot) is the MacLaren. It is the BEST! I swear. They came out with a new line. But the handles are super high. It folds down super small and has a strap to carry on your back so you can hold baby too. I can lug that baby up stairs with a baby in my arms. Just a thought if someone was looking for a lightweight. It even comes with a storage place underneath. The new line is a bit different but you can find the older ones other places. Anyways just thought I'd let you know if you were interested.

    • Hi! Thanks for sharing this story. Happy married life! If you once will need a website, here are the tips to choose a proper style and purpose. What is the purpose of a website?  Everyone finds a good reason to create a website! But in general, we can say that the websites are being created to offer a useful service that others will use. It can even be free, although if this is something really cool, you can always make money on it!
    • Hello All.. I am new to this forum and I am here to learn and share wedding clothing, jewellery tips. Hope my journey will be great here!!
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
